Look After You

"There's not much time." He croaked, his voice raspy and faint. I watched in horror as the life drained from his pale face. He was dying. My best friend was dying.
He groaned and looked at me pleadingly. "I'm all she has left. If I'm gone she has no one. Please Lou. Please. I need you to take care of her."
I gave him a faint smile, a tear rushing down my cheek. "I will."
My best friend gave me one last hopeful look as the blood continued to flow from his chest. "I need you to promise to protect her. Keep her away from the rest of your band. Protect her like she's your little sister."
I sighed and bowed my head, trying to hide my devastated face. "I promise."


2. Savior

"Wasn't that bad was it?" Ross teased pulling into the driveway of our house. Jackie's car was there, surprisingly considering she spent all her time at her boyfriends house.

"I still don't like him." I scowled entering the house. Ross rolled his eyes and threw the keys on the kitchen counter. "Jackie!" I hollered. "We are home!"

Jackie came running in, her high low dress trailing behind her. She was happier than usual, her dimples being showcased on her pure face. She was basically perfect.

"Guys! I have great news!" She squealed grabbing both my hands and spinning me around in a circle. I laughed at her excitement.

"What is it?" Ross questioned. Jackie stopped our motion, leaving me quite dizzy.

"Me and Tony are engaged!" She shouted. Her hand raised in the air, revealing a huge diamond. I gasped. "We are getting married!"

Ross furrowed his eyebrows in disproval. "You met him three months ago."

"So? I love him and he loves me!" She protested putting her hands on her small hips.

He groaned and gave her a hug. "Congratulations Jackie. Although your only twenty, I'm still happy for you."

She frowned. "But there's bad news."

Ross raised his eyebrows.

"Tony is done college and wants to go back to America to be with his family. I have to go too." She mumbled, her fingers twiddling with the collar of her shirt. "The plan is to leave next week."

I stood in shock. Jackie was leaving? And we don't even get to see her get married first?

Ross rubbed his forehead and plopped down in one of the stools aligning the counter. His broad shoulders were tense, making his body look uneasy. "Jackie why must you leave so soon?"

"I have to." Jackie protested. "I'm sorry. I'll write you guys and call and face time. It will be okay."

Ross furrowed his eyebrows frustratingly. "Saige, could you give us some privacy?"

I crossed my arms over my chest irritated. "I'm part of this too."

"Fine. Saige, could you run into the city and get some new clothes?" Ross asked sweetly. I rolled my eyes as he gave me his credit card and car keys.

"Try not to kill each other." I did need some new clothes.

"Will this be all?" The cashier asked. She was young, probably my age, and had a huge smile in her face, it almost seemed force. I nodded and handed her Ross' credit card.

"Thank you! Have a nice day!" She peeped handing me my bag. I gave her a small smile before exiting the shop. The mall was bustling, people everywhere. It wasn't usually this crowded but apparently some band was coming today, and every teenage girl of London was standing near the central area. They were screaming and crying, the noise being almost unbearable.

I sighed and went the other direction. But, the sound seemed to travel with me, the screaming never decreasing in volume as I walked further away. The floor seemed to vibrate and I started to panic as I looked behind me to see the huge mob sprinting direction. Just as I was about to run, a hand covered my mouth and dragged me into a restroom. I screamed and writhed, trying desperately to free from the strong grip around my fragile body

"Calm down Saige!"

I turned around to come face to face with Louis, his eyes full of concern. He removed his hand from my mouth. "Are you alright?"

I pushed him away from me. "What the hell?!"

"Sorry." He said throwing his hands up in defeat. "I had to hide and I didn't want you to get trampled."

I exhaled frustratingly and crossed my arms. "Are your fans always like this?"

He chuckled. "Pretty much."

"Where are the other boys?"

"Harry and Zayn are in here. Come out guys!" Two of the bathroom stalls opened to reveal a scared looking Harry and Zayn. I laughed at their faces.

"It's not funny!" Harry whined walking over to us. "Where is Liam and Niall?"

Louis gasped. "I don't know. Aw, poor Niall. We have to get them."

"Okay well I better go." I was about to grab the door when Louis stopped me. "Come on," he said. "go on an adventure with us."

"I'd rather not get mobbed. I don't do good in mobs." I scoffed. Harry smiled and grabbed my hand, causing me to tense in his touch.

"We got you." He reassured pulling me involuntarily out of the bathroom. The girls were yards in front of us, crowded around Niall and Liam.

"Niall! Liam!" Louis screamed. All the girls looked over. They pounced, and soon we were surrounded, flashes and screams clogging up the air. I started to hyperventilate, and I had to lean on Harry to keep myself steady.

"Get away from my Harry bitch!" I heard someone yell. I was shoved to the ground brusquely, the cold smooth tile feeling like knifes. I groaned in pain as feet started to trample over me.

"Harry!" I begged trying to get up, but the feet seemed to be endless. Almost as soon as I felt my eyes close, something yanked me off the ground, and I could finally see Harry's face. He was angry, but I knew it wasn't directed to me.

"Back up!" He screamed pulling my trembling body to his. I felt my breath shortening and I started to hyperventilate again. "Back up! She needs space! Please!"

The girls just screamed louder and I felt more hands grabbing at me. I grabbed his jacket harder, my body losing feeling. Then, I felt nothing.

"Saige?" I heard someone say. I blinked my eyes open, the light being blinding. When the light dimmed, I could make out the outline of two figures towering over me. I was laying on something soft, my hands clenching a soft material.

"Harry? What happened? Where am I?" I tried to get up but I fell back. Harry grabbed my body, bringing me close to him.

"Shh." Harry cooed. "You passed out while we were getting mobbed. Security finally came and got us out. Everyone is okay."

I let out a sigh of relief. "Your my savior. Where am I?"


"Shit!" I yelled. "I've got to go. Ross. Jackie."

Harry chuckled and handed me a pair of plaid boxers and a black tee shirt. "Louis already called him. He said that this isn't the first time and that you should stay here the night."

I groaned and grabbed the clothing. "Bathroom?"

He gestured to a white door. I carefully walked over, watching my footsteps.

After changing I came back out to find both Harry and Niall only in boxers sitting on both beds. They rubbed their eyes sleepily. I stood awkwardly in the bathroom doorway, my weight shifting back and forth.

"Hey it's Saige. You can bunk with me." Niall offered patting the spot next to him. I smiled shyly and sat down next to him.

"Thank you." I yawned snuggling into the sheets. The lights turned off and Niall laid next to me, his body too close to mine. Just as I was about to doze off, I felt his arm drape around my body, small snores coming from his lips. I rolled my eyes and closed my eyes again, this time completely dozing off.
